Shepherd Theater presents play ‘Almost, Maine’

By Staff | Oct 24, 2016

Shepherd University Theater presents the romantic comedy “Almost, Maine” by John Cariani. Featuring nine not-quite love stories, the play takes place in the remote, nearly-mythical New England town of Almost.

Directed by Joshua Midgett, Contemporary American Theater Festival general manager, the cast and crew include Shepherd students Temetrie Encarnacion, Tre Henley III, Kenneth May, Kaitlyn Miller, Christian Montealegre, Casey Otto, Austin Susman, Daisy Thomas, Nevada Tribble and Danyel VanReenen. Design for the show was done by Marjorie M. Baer, Trent Kugler, Chase Molden and Austin Susman.

“Almost, Maine” was developed at the Cape Cod Theater Project in 2002 and received its world premiere at Portland Stage Company. It later opened Off-Broadway and has gone on to become one of the most frequently produced plays of the past decade.

The production runs Friday and Saturday, Oct. 28-29, and Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, Nov. 3-5, in the Center for Contemporary Arts II Marinoff Theater. All performances begin at 7:30 p.m. and are free and open to the public. No reservations are required. Seating is general admission.
